Silica (Silicon dioxide)
Form Essentials Zinnia includes Silicon dioxide, or Silica, a trace mineral that is found in the body. Silicon dioxide, also known as silica, is a form of silicon present in foods. There is evidence silicon plays a role in the formation of collagen, a connective tissue found in hair, skin, and nails. In human research, supplementation with silicon resulted in smoother, less wrinkled skin and a reduction in skin roughness. Bamboo stem extract is a rich source of silica, and is used in this formulation.
Gelatin, Collagen & Elastin Peptides
Gelatin is a source of type 1 collagen, which represents 80% of all the collagen in the body. Research shows supplementation stimulates the body's production of collagen. Human clinical research has shown that supplementation with gelatin resulted in a statistically significant increase in the amount of moisture in the skin of people with dry, loose, scaly or rough skin. Like collagen, elastin is also a protein found in connective tissue. Elastin is elastic and allows body tissues to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. It is necessary for healthy skin.
Vitamin C's importance for healthy skin is underscored by the fact that this nutrient is needed for the production of collagen. Furthermore, research in over 4,000 women (40-74 years) revealed that higher vitamin C intakes were associated with a lower likelihood of a wrinkled appearance and senile dryness (dryness as a result of aging). Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant and protects skin cells and cells throughout our body from oxidative damage.
Niacin, Vitamin B6 and Pantothenic Acid
Reduced levels of niacin (as niacinamide) and pantothenic acid can contribute to the undernourishment of hair follicle cells. In addition, these two B vitamins and vitamin B6 are intimately involved in the function of the nervous system. In fact, the ability of humans to respond to stresses can be influenced by nutritional status - including the status of key B vitamins. Because stress is associated with slower or delayed wound healing, it can make it more difficult to recover from insults to the "soft tissues", including skin. Hence, supplementation with B vitamins may play a vital role in helping to counter the negative effects of stress on skin.
Symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, which is probably why biotin is often considered to be an important nutrient to promote healthy hair. Although overt biotin deficiency has been considered to be an important nutrient to promote healthy hair. Although overt biotin deficiency has been considered to be rare, research suggest that marginal biotin deficiency may be more common than previously thought. For example, evidence indicates that approximately half of the pregnant women in the USA are marginally biotin-deficient, despite a normal dietary biotin intake. In addition, research examining the effects of biotin supplementation (2,500 mcg/day for up to six months) in women with brittle fingernails found that fingernail thickness increased by 25% and splitting decreased after biotin supplementation.
